the first trailer has dropped for Paul Rudd’s new Netflix series, Living With Myself. In the film, Rudd’s character must deal with a serious existential crisis as he goes in for a self-improvement treatment only to later find that he has been cloned (or is he the clone)? He must not only learn to live with himself, but he must wrestle with the question of whether he is the clone or he is the original. As heavy as it sounds, the show looks like it could be a lot of fun.
Miles Elliott, a man struggling in life, undergoes a novel spa treatment that promises to make him a better person, only to learn he’s been replaced – literally – by a better version of himself. Living with Yourself premieres October 18 on Netflix. Living with Yourself is an existential comedy that asks: do we really want to be better? Told from multiple perspectives and intersecting storylines, the eight episode series stars Paul Rudd, Paul Rudd and Aisling Bea, and was created and written by Emmy® Award winner Timothy Greenberg (The Daily Show with Jon Stewart), and directed by Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris (The Battle of the Sexes, Little Miss Sunshine). Greenberg executive produces with Anthony Bregman and Jeff Stern for Likely Story, Tony Hernandez for Jax Media, Dayton, Faris, Rudd, and Jeff Blitz.
*Sidenote – The new series actually seems to have a similar vibe to the 2014 Mark Duplass film, The One I Love. Check out a trailer below:
